I don't think there's enough water in the Potomac for a 10 foot surge, but a 3 meter wave would cover National Airport, Potomac Park, and the Alexandria waterfront up most of that block west of Union Street.  Probably the WWII Memorial, too, and up towards the Ellipse and lower Georgetown unless they get the flood walls up.  I think CC is probably behind berms and built up stuff, but there may be ways it could infiltrate.
As best I can tell the three meter wave hit in the small outer islands. More like one meter in the main Japanese islands.
