Nikon has issued a second notice on the flooding of its factory in Ayutthaya, Thailand, which makes APS-C format DSLRs and many Nikkor lenses, among other products. 

The notice states that no injuries to Nikon personnel have been reported.

The first floor of the factory is still flooded up to a height of as high as two meters, according to the statement. Nikon says it cannot determine when the factory might be operational again, and is unable at this time to make an estimate of the closure's impact on its business performance.

The statement goes on to say the company is evaluating alternate production locations ("review of production assignment among whole Nikon group companies") and planning for the possible purchase of new production equipment.
