Since July, Thailand has been experiencing incredibly bad flooding – the worst in over half a decade. Over two million people are affected by the floods. Farmland is covered, temples have been damaged and people have been injured and killed.
Nikon’s entry-level DSLR factory is one of the many businesses that is suffering in the flood. The entire first floor of the building has been overtaken by water, shutting down production completely.
“We are continuing to investigate details of the damage, but are unable to predict how soon operation will be resumed,” says Nikon in a statement. ” We will set up our recovery support system and endeavor to restart its operation as early as possible.”
