March 27, 1950 - Pamperin Park, Oneida Club report damage: With the river still rising, Duck Creek residents were expressing concern that floating ice might jam up against two bridges and further inundate the small community.

Duck Creek is spilling its banks all along its course; at least 12 houses were isolated by the rapidly rising water in Duck Creek, and another half dozen elsewhere.

The creek has already isolated the pavilion and one home in Pamperin park.

Damage has been done to the Oneida Golf and Riding club golf course. One bridge, connecting holes No. 9 and 10, has been swept away.

Peter La Fave, a former Duck Creek commercial fisherman, described it "as bad as I've seen it in the last 40 or 50 years."

Homes which have been flooded include those owned by Louis Fournier, Peter Fournier, William Brown, Mrs. E. Van Hoff, Elmer Henning, W.G. Whitcomb, J.J. Wennesheimer, Duck Creek poundmaster, and A. Steller.
