One Texas county is scrambling to deal with an influx of dead bodies due to the winter storm punishing the state.

"Galveston County officials said Tuesday they are requesting a refrigerated truck to deal with a surge in cold weather deaths," KTRK-TV reported Tuesday.

The network interviewed Galveston County Judge Mark Henry.

"We were notified of an emergency request about lunchtime today that the medical examiner needed a capacity of at least 20 and as many as 50, in addition to the normal storage," Henry said.

Earlier on Tuesday, Judge Henry blasted the inability of officials to restore power.
