CINCINNATI (AP) - The National Weather Service says rainfall in the Cincinnati area over the last month is the most the region has recorded for that time period since the 19th century.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (https://cin.ci/1TFkxVv ) the area has received more than 10 inches of rain between June 15 and July 14. The National Weather Service says that’s the most rain recorded in the region for that time period since 1871.

The rain has had a ripple effect on local events.

Riverbend Music Center officials say a Friday James Taylor Concert has been delayed, citing concerns the stage could become flooded from the rising Ohio River.

In Rising Sun, Indiana, organizers of the Seaplane Splash-In are expecting lower turnouts at the Ohio River event this weekend due to water levels and strong currents.
