Flooding is taking a toll on the weekend concert schedule at Riverbend Music Center.

Friday's James Taylor concert has been postponed until July 26. 

Thursday's Vans Warped Tour is still expected to occur.

Saturday's Fifth Harmony show at PNC Pavilion is canceled due to a scheduling conflict. Refunds will be distributed through the point of purchase, according to a Riverbend official. 

Nearly unprecedented rainfall over the past several weeks have pushed the levels of the Mississippi and Ohio rivers to exceptionally high levels.

The Army Corps of Engineers expects the Ohio River to keep rising over the next few days, causing flooding at Riverbend.

This has been one of the wettest summers so far on record. Some 10.47 inches of rainfall was recorded at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport between June 15 to July 14, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington. 

That's the wettest in that period over the past 144 years.

Tickets for James Taylor's original show will be honored on July 26. Tickets also are still for sale at www.Ticketmaster.com and www.Riverbend.org and at all Ticketmaster outlets.
