    In a flurry, I dashed out of the room and...

    Can the word 'flurry' be used to mean 'hurry', like the following sentence:

    In a flurry, I dashed out of the room and chased the intruder.

    I usually use it in the context of "flurry of activity/excitement" etc.
    Also is it "flurry of activities or flurry of activity"?

    Thank you.

    I understand it to mean in a rushed, disorganized state.
    I am not a teacher.
