    correct substitute?

    HI,

    Could you please help me out with these!

    The economic history of post- independence india has come to be divided into BR and AR, before and after the reforms.And, of late, one has been witnessing something of a storm/outpouring/overwhelming/influx of literature in the form of jornals, articles and books on the subject of reform.

    Which of these is the correct substitute and why? any help is welcome!

    "Storm" is the only one which works after "a", all the others require "an". In fact, "overwhelming" doesn't work at all.

    If instead of article 'a', 'an' is used, would the word outpouring fit in?
