  • Please edit the context which you supply in your comment into the question itself, so potential answerers will notice it. – StoneyB on hiatus Nov 30 '16 at 14:44

To storm something is to charge towards it, as in an attack; soldiers could storm a defensive position occupied by an enemy.

The "well" (now that you've added your comment) is an area in front of a legislative assembly, before the rostrum from which the speaker addresses the assembly.
