You'd think so, but the moons perigee occurs *every month*.
One would think that if there's a perigee related earthquake relationship, it probably would have been noticed by now.
The "supermoon" today is merely a pretty looking full moon at this time. Nobody ever gets excited about a "super new moon", or a "super first
quarter moon", or a "super crescent moon" when they occur at perigee.
