This situation is not unlike the Thailand flooding of earlier this year that killed off a huge percentage of world-wide hard drive production for all of the manufacturers.

The Thai flooding also screed up Nikon and Sony DSLR production. Nikon re-established their manufacturing on other, safer areas of Thailand while Sony moved their assembly back to Japan.

The cam makers will have to decide where to make their products. Urban rioting, flooding, a zombie apocalypse, all of these will disrupt a supply chain.
