However, some senior meteorologists and astronomers said that there is no connection between the earthquake and the moon's position since the full moon day is still 8-days away and the gravitational pull of the satellite is not so strong enough to cause major disasters.

But some 'new age' forecasts state that the supermoon brings strong earthquakes, storms or unusual climate patterns.
