Making a Great Clamor

Once in the Warring States Period, the State of Jin was at war with the State of Chu. Duke Gong of Chu stood on a high platform built on chariot and watched the movements of the Jin army. After watching for a while, he said ,"It's quite noisy over there and cloud of dust has been stirred up." His aide answered, "The enemy are filling up wells and destroying their cooking stoves. They are preparring to fight."

This idiom is now used to mean a lot of commotion over hearsay.

战国时代,晋国和楚国交战。楚共王站在架有高台的战车上观察晋军的动静。看了一会儿,楚王说:“那天人声十分喧嚣,而且尘土都飞扬起来了!”部下说:“这是他们在填井平灶,摆开阵势要作战啦。”

“甚嚣尘上”这个成语现在比喻对传闻的事情议论纷纷。
