A pensioner had a terrifying view from her bedroom window as Hawaii’s 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 Dona’s 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.

‘We’ll 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.’

Scientists say that the lava discharged up to this point, was magma that had been stored in chambers since the 1955 eruption, but now, we're seeing the much more fluid lava from Pu'u O'o's collapse.

Volcanic activity from the Malama Ki and Leilani Estates neighborhoods glows in the distance seen from Highway 137 near Pahoa, Hawaii on Thursday, May 17, 2018. The greatest ongoing hazard is the ongoing lava flows and hot, toxic gases spewing from open fissure vents close to homes and critical infrastructure, said Charles Mandeville of the U.S. Geological Survey???s volcano hazards program.
