I wrote the following:
A creaking metallic sound awakened Erin. Raising her eyes, she looked to the front. It came from the door. Someone was opening the elevator. She waited expectantly while the struggle continued on the other side, her heart pounding with each bang. There was a screeching sound. Then, finally, the door clanked open. The bright light that (...) in blinded Erin.
I could only think of come and stream. But I think they don't give the feeling of light coming in "abruptly." I though of rush. But I think it's not very common to use it to describe movement of light?
What verb to use to describe light coming in rapidly?
