    Cool hurled off their feet

    In the following sentence:

    The soldiers rushing up the steps shrieked as they died, hurled off their feet and away by the power thet seared them...

    In red, what's hard to catch exactly.

    Is it saying something like "they were thrown out the stairs"?

    Thank You for any assistance you can give,

    It reads like they were blown off the stairs in an explosion.
