What would happen if Mount St Helen’s erupted?

The geologists would flock to it. Mt. St. Helens isn't especially dangerous right now as it's been venting adequately since its last eruption.

Volcanoes such as Mount St. Helens in Washington state generate a wide variety of phenomena that can alter the earth's surface and atmosphere, endangering people, wildlife, and property. These volcanic dangers include not only an eruption of a mountain and associated lava flows but also ash fall and debris flows

Probably a lot like what happened in 1980 when it erupted last time.

Mount Saint Helens isn't in Yellowstone.
That's like asking: what if the Nile River flooded in Argentina?

The same thing that happened in May 1980, although it might not erupt in the same direction as last time.
Yellowstone is NOT overdue for a super eruption. As long as the geysers keep going off, pressure is NOT building up in the magma chamber. If Mt. Rainier erupts laterally like .t. St Helen's did in the right direction, Seattle and Portland would be buried in ash pretty quickly
