Someone could easily still be alive prior to the disaster in both cases. Kanon or Shannon could be alive in ep1, Kyrie or Hideyoshi in ep3.
And what real reason would anybody have to destroy the corpses after death? They should be literally swarming with finger prints and DNA after most of them were touched by almost anybody among the survivors...
There pretty much isn't one. Also bear in mind the DNA evidence would be hopeless in the mid-80s given the circumstances the bodies must have been found in (especially if the corpses were destroyed). There's no reason to hide the bodies at all because everyone knows the whole family (minus Ange) was on the island. Captain Kawabata would witness to that right away. This lends credence to a large-scale killing method or a natural disaster. In the former case, the bodies being destroyed isn't the killer trying to hide evidence (just the natural result of their method); in the latter, nature obviously has no motives.
It is true that we do not know nearly enough about the crime-scene to actually make any assumptions about what happened.
At least it is clear that some things like one stake was found in Episode 3's world, so if it wasn't drastically relocated there should still be a hall to find it in.
Well, if Kyrie was the one who survived long enough to kill Nanjo, and Mammon was the stake in her, perhaps Eva went looking for people and found the stake in another location, got worried, and took it with her to wherever was safe?
How would the bombs for example work? Where are they located?
And the landslide...where did it come from? There don't seem to be high enough landparts around the mansion to induce a slide of enough force and the coast seems to be made of solid rock, so the mansion's ground sliding downwards towards the sea seems equally unreasonable.
Apart from that typhoon's are rather common along that part of the ocean and it shouldn't be the first typhoon to hit Rokkenjima in around 40 years...considering the mansion seems to have been there for at least 25-30 years I think it is safe to assume it has survived something like that.
The island is quite hilly, almost mountainous. It's suggested many times that actually getting to Kuwadorian would be incredibly dangerous and nearly impossible on foot from the mansion (Rosa did it, but Beatrice died on the way back, so it's obviously quite risky). Perhaps other typhoons have hit, but not bad enough to cause landslides.

Or perhaps human agency was at work to ensure a "disaster" happened. We have not the slightest idea what's going on, and until the midnight event is identified, I doubt it will be possible to save everyone from it.
