Supermoon

I don't know if you have heard or read in the news about the supermoon coming tomorrow on May 5, 2012 at 11:30 pm. This is a time in the cycle of the moon's orbit when it comes closest to the earth. Of course, such a large object in space so close to us tends to be a little unnerving and of course the stories will fly. Will there be strange events caused by this phenomenon? 
 
We live just yards from the top of the Chesapeake Bay and will expect an extra high tide. With the heavy rain that is forecast for earlier in the day, we might have to look for flooding, but that should be the extent of it. Here is a picture I borrowed from, the Ben Stacy Blog.

Supermoon
What if..
 
My imagination can think of several story ideas. What about you?
