A town in Connecticut is having problems with garage doors opening and closing, and a submarine might be the reason.

 

According to the story, the cause is radio signals from the local submarine base.

Garage door openers aren't working, leaving vehicles either stuck outside or inside garages, where manual overrides have to be used to get the doors open.

It doesn't look like the Navy will be changing the frequencies anytime soon, so people will have to shell out extra money to get dual-frequency remote devices to be able to again, use the automatic openers.

Finding out about this story, reminded me of this commerical:

I'm just thankful that when folks there attempt to use their garage door openers, it doesn't have a reverse effect, and raise and lower the submarines.
