The story did say the county (of over 375,000 people) morgue only had 12 spots.
US death rate of 8.1/1,000 means "normal" deaths are over 3,000 per year, but only a fraction of those end up in the county morgue.  Add drug death concentrations and you probably have another 200 to 300 over that (who would ALL probably go to the morgue for autopsy).  So the morgue is probably handling nearly double what they did 10 years before.

Grim statistics all the same.
