Landlord raising rent without repairs

Tiffany
Okay so, in April we had a terrible storm the took off pieces of the roof of my apartment.our roof now leaks and leaks right over an electrical socket. The landlord mentioned he has roofers lined up all summer but they never came. It's now fall and raining again, so roofers can't do anything and our roof is leaking. I have a four month that sleeps in the room and a 5 yr old who sleeps in a different room. Now the kicker to this is he has raised the rent twice since then. Is that even legal? Can he raise the rent without making necessary repairs to the apartment?
