March 19 extreme 'Supermoon'

Come Mar 19, the moon will come very near to Mother Earth, as near as a mere 356,577 kilometres away. This rare event is known as a lunar perigee, dubbed a "supermoon" by astrologer Richard Nolle back in the 1970s. The term is used to describe a new or full moon at 90% or more of its closest orbit to Earth. Next week, it will be at 100%.

The question is does an event of a 'Supermoon' cause floods and extreme earthquakes or volcanoes? The last extreme supermoon occurred a few days after the 8.9 earthquake in Indonesia. Extreme supermoons had known to have caused flooding in 1954, 1974 and 1992. So, did the coming Mar 19 'supermoon' amplified the Japan 8.9 earthquake?
