If the unit will be uninhabitable during the time that repairs are being made, then that would violate the implied warranty of habitability inherent in any lease. With that said, you as the landlord would be obligated to either waive any rent during that period or put them up in a hotel until the repairs are made. This is the tenant's choice as to whether to accept the rent refund/abatement or stay in a comparable hotel/motel.
But if you talk to your insurance agent, this might be something that is covered under your policy.
