If this eruption is as strong or stronger than the 1991 Mt. Pinatubo one, the entire planet will suffer. Global temperatures plunged 1 degree for a year following the Pinatubo eruption, and the ash and sulfur ejected into the atmosphere from that one remained for 2 to 3 years.

If this happens with Mt. Redoubt, Al Gore might have to find a new line of work.
