There was a small, 3-foot wave that lapped gently over the Cape.

Almost all of the other shuttles, along with OV10, OV11, and OV12 (which were built specifically for the military) were at Vandenberg, which likewise was saved due to poor aiming, computer errors, missile defense and fratricide. Discovery, however, was attacked in orbit by a Soviet spaceplane and was hit by several minelets, which damaged Discovery enough that it could not conduct a normal reentry. To keep Discovery from the Soviets, the crew deliberately deorbited Discovery to go down in the Pacific.

Just my T2Ku.
Same here, in my T2Ku, the Soviets hit Cape Canaveral, but the only warheads that made it hit some of the old disused launch pads, or landed out to sea and the resulting tidal wave is what hit the Cape.
