hordes of


Several U.S. weather and news Web sites were deluged by heavy traffic ashordes ofpeople went online seeking emergency information and news on Hurricane Katrina, which battered the U.S. Gulf Coast.

Some of the graphic content on weather.com was not available from 6 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. on Sunday night, as the storm was approaching its Louisiana landfall, according to Keynote Systems Inc., which monitors Internet performance.

文中的“hordes of”的意思是“成群的;大批的”,如:A horde of children ran over the office building.(一大群孩子在办公大楼里到处奔跑。)又如:There were hordes of fans waiting outside the theatre.(剧院外等着大批的狂热爱好者。)
