English term or phrase:wailing
(This girl just surprised her father cheating on his mother with another woman):
I burst in through the back door of the shop still screaming like one possessed by a demon. I looked at the shocked customers and gave another deafening wail. Before my mother could look at me twice, I had jumped out of the shop the way I had come, *wailing* the more.
(I translated "deafening wail" by cri assourdissant")
