Quick answer: Read your lease.
Longer answer: Read your lease. Does it say that the property must be inhabitable. (It probably does.) If the property isn't inhabitable, then (and I'm not a lawyer so this isn't legal advice) then your landlord has broken the lease. But you shouldn't just stop paying him. Check with a lawyer.
By now, the landlord should have done the repairs. I own a rental property and water got into the basement during the hurricane. Within a week, we had a company come in, remove the wet carpeting and padding, and install new carpeting. A lot of carpeting companies were backed up immediately after the hurricane, but that should have been cleared away by now. (My tenant and my wife both called ServPro the day of the flooding. ServPro told both of us that the earliest they could even return our calls--not do the work, but just get back to us--was a week later. And, yup, it took ServPro 8 days just to call my wife and our tenant back. You have to wonder why companies spend so much money on advertising when they can't deliver. But that's a question for another day.)
