Let it keep going it can take 45 min

Stopping it early can screw things up.

Yes, it can take a lot of time sometimes.. When I did it the first time, it took me about 35 mins.. The next time I did it, it took just 5 mins. The stock recovery and act weird sometimes!

Wait for another 30 mins and if it doesn't complete then only terminate it and perform the wipe again..

does terminating the format procedure harm the storage?

Nope.. Not that I know of. The worst case scenario would be your /cache /data partitions getting messed up but that can be fixed by formatting them again in the recovery.

Although, I haven't tried terminating the process and random goof ups can occur with anyone!
