Thailand flooding reaches Nikon’s factories

I already mentioned about the flooding threat for Nikon factories in Thailand over the weekend. Today Bloomberg reported that Nikon's factories are "swamped":

"The deluge swept across the country starting in late July, killing 269 people, swamping factories operated by Honda Motor Co., Nikon Corp. and Canon Inc. and damaging more than 10 percent of rice farms in the biggest exporter of the grain."

This natural disaster may not be as big as the earthquake in Sendai, but will probably cause some further delay on Nikon products, especially entry level DSLRs that are produced in Thailand.
