First, both Western Digital and Seagate (the only major players left in the HDD industry) headquarters are based in the United States, it is the corporate executives who call the shots on prices.
Second, they are not going to drop as fast as you want, at least not pre-flood levels. They've basically said these new prices are going to stay, take it or leave it in this report here
Third, the flood was in Thailand, not Taiwan.
