September is the most active month for hurricanes. Tell me, can two hurricanes collide, and ultimately merge into two larger hurricanes? What would the catastrophe be?

A similar question was asked at the site detailed below.|
It states that tropical storms rarely collide head-on - the last time being in 1995, when Hurricane Iris merged with Tropical Depression Karen.
The short answer appears to be that there are a number of possibilities, including:
1. One or both storms may break up.
2. They may spin in a mutual orbit around each other.
3. One may overwhelm the other.
4. They may head off in different directions.
Alas, a definitive answer is not provided and much is speculative:
