The production shot some scenes on the actual pier in Santa Monica. Then the filmmakers recreated a few streets and a piece of the pier in the Baja Studios in Rosarito (Mexico), as Entertainment Weekly reported.

The second episode will focus on the flooding and the rescue team sent to help the people trapped at the top of the Ferris wheel.

How was 911 filmed
Making a tsunami: The Baja Studios Tank 1 set is an infinite horizon pond overlooking the Pacific, built in 1997 specifically to film James Cameron's Titanic.

Pictured on the left, the Baja tank during the filming of Master and Commander. On the right side, the huge gimbal machine is located in the deepest part of the tank.

The studio features a smaller outdoor water tank and two more indoor stages to host the large productions that use the facilities.
