That's so depressing. I would always try rehabbing baby birds but they seldom made it. The decapitated adults would be the work of cats, I would think. Since you've been having a lot of rain the babies may have drowned. Without their full feathers the water soaks right through. (Even baby ducks can drown.)
Mites are not at all unusual on birds so I don't think that's part of your problem.
If it's going to storm again, I would suggest that you put the two that you've found in a box or cage, etc., and put it under a shelter. Their parents may be gone and they'll be more likely to survive the night some place warm and dry.
Good luck - let me know how it goes.
