Rather bad luck to have it happen simultaneously. Drives from the same lot can have a tendency to fail near each other, but same day is bit coincidental. Any chance you have a kid running around who whacked them together at the same time?

Or lightning...

Or a power surge, most consumer grade surge protectors aren't worth very much anyway.
