I think it all boils down to how much warning we get. If it just happens, or it is only hours, then not many will survive. If it is days or weeks, then that is a different matter.

We may already be getting all the warning this type of volcano will give. The earth in the vicinity is rising and tilting and there are numerous little earthquakes every day. Nobody wants to raise the red flag without more data and I doubt that most people who live in the vicinity would leave anyway. How do you evacuate everyone between the Mississippi River and the Rocky Mountains? The only thing that those people can do is continue to work and play and pray it doesn't happen. Personally I won't live in several cities or regions including Tacoma Washington. Mount Rainier will probably be the first big volcano near a US city to blow it's top.
My motto: Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow as it may not be required. This no longer applies in light of current events.
