We have had these trees for over 12 years. This has never happened before. Should we cut them down or wait and see?

This article should help you with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/tips-for-saving-cold-damaged-plants.htm

Minor pruning may be necessary depending on the damage, but I would wait until it's safe to do so in case of another cold snap. This article should help with that as well: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/crepe-myrtle/best-crepe-myrtle-pruning-time-when-to-prune-crepe-myrtle.htm
