Water ingress causing a short circuit of the opening mechanism/switch. Investigate seal/s and/or switches to ensure they are not compromised and remain dry. Alternatively, move to a drier climate. You could also interpret this as a safety device for flood areas - at least that's what I would tell my neighbours and friends...
