Question
i know it's probably a 1 in a 1000000000000 or more chance but is it possible for 2 hurricanes to collide into each other? if yes, what would probably happen to them?

Answer
Hi Ben

I think the probability is much higher than that.

Two tropical storms can merge under the right conditions:

The merger can result in a same strength or greater storm.
