$320 million of cheese destroyed in Italian earthquake

On Sunday, Northern Italy was rocked by a magnitude-6.0 earthquake. In the process, many cheese factories in the region suffered damage—and it is estimated that over 300,000 wheels of cheese, thought to be worth at least $320 million, have been destroyed.

The region, just north of the city of Bologna, is most famous for its Parmesan and Grana Padano. As the earthquake struck, wheels of the cheeses—which can weigh up to 90 pounds—came toppling from their storage shelves. It’s suspected that, if anything, the $320 million total is an underestimate of the total value of damaged cheese, reports the Mirror.
