A pensioner had a terrifying view from her bedroom window as Hawaiiâs Kilauea volcano erupted earlier this week.
Dona Mueller, 75, from Puna, Hawaii, watched as red lava spilled out of the volcano in front of her home.
But she was quickly evacuated as the aftershocks of the euruption were so powerful that her glass windows shattered.
Photographer, Joseph Anthony, 44, captured the scary moment the volcano erupted from Donaâs bedroom.
The volcano, which erupted earlier this week, is continuing to produce lava flows and clouds of volcanic ash.
Dona, who has lived in her home since 1980, said: ‘These violent eruptions are happening more frequently in our area.
‘My daughter was due to come and live in Hawaii two years ago but if my home is ruined by lava I will perhaps move to Los Angeles.
‘If the lava hits the controversial geothermal plant behind our homes it could cause a big explosion.
‘My son in law is flying in today. He is a police officer and he is bringing 18 gas masks for local police to use as they have not been issued with any!
‘The locals are handling things better than officials and more efficiently exchanging information between each other.
‘Weâll just have to wait and see what happens in the next few days to find out if or when we can return to our homes.â
