How about 'Upheaval'?
I'm an expert at upheaval these days, it's a word that combines 'disaster' with 'catastrophe' in the best possible taste. And it's got 'Anglo-Saxon' credentials!
*(seems someone else got in with that one while I was still typing this out)
Destruction; annihilation; debacle, disaster; upheaval....
Cataclysm is a violent force of nature like an earthquake or hurricane.

Whoops you used cataclysm
Just so you know, in philosophy, a synonym means the same thing - e.g., bachelor/unmarried. So, disaster, calamity, are synonyms of 'cataclysm', hence mean the same thing.
