What would happen? Is it a survivable catastrophy or instantanious death for most americans? In my mind this would create the ultimate SHTF scenario for anyone not instantly killed. Not only here in America but worldwide.

The ash typically reaches from MT to the Mississippi and down to TX. Areas to the West are left untouched due to prevailing winds. The temperature of the earth might drop a couple degrees for a few years.

So, food would become expensive and America would be in a world of hurt. It wouldn't be a mass extinction event though, unless the rest of the world decides to take advantage of us in our moment of weakness.

Basically, we'd all be fucked. If not from the eruption or its aftereffects, then from having California become the new US capitol.

I've noticed that people who are unfamiliar with human physiology actually think that the items in red are common and particularly plausible.

Silicosis is not particularly instant, and that would probably be the predominant killer. So, no, not instantaneous death for most Americans, the vast majority of people killed won't be instantly killed, and as a matter of fact a very large number of people killed by such an event will probably be casualties of their own ignorance or misjudgement. Outside of areas subject to pyroclastic flow and similar hazards, building collapse and silicosis are going to be among the chief killers, along with lahars (mud flows) and asphyxiation by ash or mud.

Much like nuclear war, people like to assume that it will be a world-ending catastrophe that is impossible to survive. The fact of the matter is many would survive, and some sad souls would die due to a combination of stupidity and lack of preparation.

From my estimation and research anyone with in 300 miles on the west, south or north is pretty much screwed, everyone east is going to be screwed for the most part. Anyone within a hundred miles will probably be incinerated. The earths temp is going to drop bringing on nuclear winter of sorts, as long as you are southwest you will probably be okay. Anyone in the air or in car is probably going to die. Most of the houses to the east are going to be crushed by the 8-20ft of ash sitting on them. So most of the world population would survive,

OP, it's like terminal ballistics.

Sounds like you can just fire a gun in the general direction of someone and they'll instantly die. Doesn't really work that way. And their long term odds even in the worst cases can be vastly improved with rapid medical attention.

If Yellowstone has an eruption with close to it's historical magnitude, we're fucked. Either quickly, or slowly starving. West of the Mississippi and all the way to SoCal, there will be ash covering everything.

How long were European flights grounded by the Iceland volcano? Relief flights into the U.S. would face the same thing.

Is there some reason you think that one eruption is going to wipe out the US, not to mention the world?

I may be mistaken but all of the ash deposits from previous caldera eruptions of Yellowstone covered an area to the west, south west, south and slightly south east.

Good thing that the US doesn't produce 45% of the world's corn, 50% of it's total soy beans, or 20% of global wheat production....oh, wait a minute. I'm not sure we'd be seeing a huge queue of relief flights waiting for clear weather in the US to land....foreign nations might have to worry about feeding their own, first. Global crop yields are going to be impacted for several years by an erruption of this magnitude. It might be something like one big global North Korea for a year or two. But, I've read North Korea is Best Korea, so maybe it won't be so bad, right?

The worst thing about it would be that most of the non-liberal parts of the US would be wiped out. The US heartland, the bread basket,
the plains and prairies. Where people might not always have a high level college education but they sure learned some common sense
and useful things like "Meat does not originate from the local grocery store. And you have to work at something to eat anything."

That sensible bunch would be greatly missed. Fortunately, most of them would heed the impending eruption warnings and head for safer
territory.


The best thing about it would be that the liberal southern half of CA would probably be wiped out.

Discovery Channel had an episode on it a while back, here's the webpage to the show http://dsc.discovery.com/convergence/supervolcano/under/under.html

Here's what they say would happend if it erupted

There is no argument that a major eruption at Yellowstone in modern times would be devastating. It would obliterate the national park and nearby communities, spread ground-glass-like volcanic ash from the Pacific coast to the Midwest, and cause worldwide weather changes from the airborne dust and gases, according to Smith, who described the potential effects in detail in his book Windows Into the Earth, published in 2000.

A modern full-force Yellowstone eruption could kill millions, directly and indirectly, and would make every volcano in recorded human history look minor by comparison.
