Did You Know?

Q: Can two hurricanes join into one storm and if so which name would the storm take?

A: Sometimes tropical cyclones can interact – either by influencing each others tracks or with one gobbling the other up. In the latter case, typically it is a strong system taking in a weak, dissipating system or even the remnants of a storm. In this case, the name of the stronger storm would continue to be the name of the combined storm.
