(3) A sudden gust; a violent blast.
           Oh that that earth, which kept the world in awe, Should patch a wall, t’expel the winter’s flaw.  Shakespeare, Hamlet.
(4)  A tumult; a tempestuous uproar.
(5) A sudden commotion of mind.

From:  Johnson's Dictionary, A Modern Selection by E.L. McAdam, Jr. and George Milne
