CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — If you've visited Seaside Memorial Park recently, you may have noticed a large tent structure.

It was put up yesterday to house two portable morgue trailers.

Each has a capacity of 80 bodies.

One of the trailers arrived about a month ago.

The other one is owned by Seaside Memorial.

Both are diesel powered, so they can be used as a backup storage facility in case of prolonged power outages.
