A clip that Al shared of him and his team being buffeted by the wind and water got many fans asking him to leave and take cover, with many like Today co-host Hoda Kotb showcasing their support.

He shared a response to the concerns of his fans and followers with a new video on Instagram, where he took off one of his boots in his bathtub and proceeded to drain the water out of them.
