Jennifer Lopez made a major announcement on Sunday.

During a press conference with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Lopez announced she's making a $1 million donation to hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico. The singer and actress took to Instagram Friday to tell her followers that she hadn't heard from her family in Puerto Rico after the recent hurricanes that swept through the area.

"What's foremost in my mind and many others, is trying to figure out the best way to help," Lopez said. "Our island of Puerto Rico has been hit by the two most devastating hurricanes we've ever seen Irma and Maria. Today, Puerto Rico needs our help. I urge you to support and donate to the efforts( of the first lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Rosselló. Together we can help rebuild our island and the Caribbean."

Jennifer Lopez Still Can't Get in Touch With Her Family in Puerto Rico

During the press conference on Sunday, Lopez said she still hasn't heard from her family in Puerto Rico and that she is "concerned" for them and "everyone on the island."

Governor Cuomo thanked Lopez for being at the press conference on Twitter. "#PuertoRico needs our help. Thank you @JLo for joining us today," he wrote.

He also tweeted a link to his followers, letting them know how they can help in this effort.
