Disequilibrium in markets

Describe two different markets where there has been a market disequilibrium. That is, there is a shortage or a surplus. This is often temporary for weeks or months, maybe because of a natural disaster. Briefly discuss the supply and demand curve in each case. What can a manager of a firm within this industry do to minimize the impact of this situation (or to take the best advantage of it)?
