Tuckerton was an early . port and historically a clamming and fishing village. Of the 618 houses in the Tuckerton Beach special flood zone area, 90 percent were damaged or destroyed. As of September, 219 new houses — defined as those that were substantially improved or raised to meet new code requirements — went up in town. If there’s a silver lining, it’s that Sandy wiped away many of the blighted or abandoned houses, Tuckerton municipal construction official Phil Reed said. Bigger houses replaced them, meaning more taxable property.
