It is not possible to build a network that could withstand anything and everything, and it would be prohibitively expensive to try, but it is possible to design networks so that critical parts can withstand severe weather and others can recover more rapidly to ensure that customers have power at a time when they may need it the most.
Typically, governments focus on incident response, trying to manage the event and its aftermath. International agencies such as the United Nations, through its International Strategy for Disaster Reduction, encourage an approach that supports risk reduction and preparedness. Evidence shows that every dollar spent reducing risk prior to an event replaces the $4 that would need to be spent on recovery and response
