I would wait a few weeks before pruning. As miserable as your plants look, they may still bloom right on time. After their normal bloom period, prune them back to remove the damaged parts. They will spend the rest of the summer recovering, developing new stems, foliage and flower buds for next spring's floral display. Best wishes with your azaleas!
