Agreed. My favorite movie when I was a kid. They mention Atlanta, Chicago, and Philadelphia being destroyed. And then obviously Houston, but that was from the nuclear bomb. The book also adds San Francisco as being one of the U.S. cities, I believe in the initial attack.
A few years ago I actually came across a website or forum where someone (with way too much time on their hands!) created a hypothetical list of each city destroyed in each round of attack, based on their global/military importance and the geography of where the first 36 ships had attacked.
