WD Building Flooded - Hard Drive Prices Continue To Rise Due To Flooding
Hard drive prices have sky rocketed in recent weeks due to the tragic flooding over in Thailand. Western Digital is one of the hard drive companies that is impacted by the flooding and it appears to be pretty bad after looking at some pictures we came across on Forbes.com today. The water is reported as being 2 meters deep and the flood water won't recede for at least three weeks. After the water recedes it may take up to six months to replace the equipment and become fully operational! This is bad news for everyone!
