Think of two cars running on the same tank of gas. You could keep a straw pumping and exchanging the gas between the two cars, but eventually, one car will end up the victor. So, hurricanes and tropical system can interact with each other, but usually there is a sacrifice. Now, lets take for example two tropical storms merging in the central Atlantic. Those two storms can collide and become larger, but not more powerful. One storm is usually absorbed. The storm may later become more powerful, but that does not mean it was from the collision.

It's possible, but not with these two storms. Katia will be 600 miles from BERMUDA on September 6. There is no way a tropical storm would be able to stay together that long once striking land in Louisiana. Lee will be long over before even an accurate path for Katia will be available.
