According to Unalaska residents, an American submarine that stopped by Dutch Harbor to offload some scientists caused a stir in town Thursday with rumors out about it being a Russian sub with engine or heating problems. But it seems that wasn't the case. It is supposedly a U.S. Navy Los Angeles class submarine dropping off scientists who had spent the past few months in the Arctic.

See photos of the distant sub's conning tower jutting up from the water at The Dutch Harbor Fisherman.
