The Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X premiere featured a very scary-looking storm that led to the evacuation of the entire cast - but where exactly did they go?

A huge cyclone whipped through Fiji on the second day of filming on Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X. This led to host Jeff Probst ushering the entire 20-person cast to a safe location, but we did not see where they specifically went.

Luckily, Probst just delved into what they did with the 20 castaways during that nasty storm.

"We made the decision to bring them to base camp so that we would all be together," Probst told Entertainment Weekly. "We put each tribe in a separate room with absolutely nothing in it. No food, no blankets, no pillows, nothing. They were monitored by producers the entire night. And, to their credit, they did not talk or try to form alliances. They honored the good faith agreement we had made. The next morning, we returned them to the beaches and the game resumed."

One shot we did see from the storm was in the aftermath of the tree falling on the Gen Xers' camp. So how was this shot taken given the circumstances? Proust explained that their "POV" crew member, Andrew Metz, took a GoPro out on the island, which ended up giving them the money shot in the end.

"So Andrew headed out to the beach, set up a GoPro - and that is the shot you saw where the Gen X tribe camp was literally destroyed by one huge tree. Had he not come up with that idea we would not have the shot, and without the shot there would be no way to show just how strong and potentially deadly the storm turned out to be," Probst stated. "Reason #3,875 why I love working on this show."

Will there be even more storms that rain down upon the castaways in the future? As Probst stated in the premiere, it is cyclone season in Fiji, and anything could happen.

Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
