Nikon gauging damages in Thailand factory flood

As a result of the flooding of its factory in Thailand's Ayutthaya Province over the weekend, Nikon has stopped operation until October 6. The update, shared by Nikon Rumors, has the first floor of all buildings currently submerged. The factory manufactures digital single-lens reflex cameras and interchangeable lenses for these DSLRs.

Detailed damages are still being investigated, and how many people were hurt or killed is also still unknown. Nikon promises to update the public and its shareholders as soon as it gauges how its operations will be affected. The torrential downpours started in July.

Nikon has requested that the Thai government, together with the Rojana Industrial Park authority, the other companies in the park, and Japan's External Trade Organization drain the industrial park as soon as possible.
