The beauty of the Cloud Computing paradigm is that the customer doesn't have to worry about the exact location of the data, as long as the provider can guarantee the Confidentiality, Integrity and the Availability. In fact I prefer if the contract between the customer and the cloud computing provider doesn't include the clause about the exact location of the data. This gives the provider the agility and nimbleness during disaster recovery.

Of course, there will be cases like the one you mentioned, but as cloud computing mutures, the providers that can demonstrate resiliency in face of disasters will comes out as winners.
