Good Questions: Earthquake Proofing Shelves?

Hello Apartment Therapy,
I am moving to a small studio apartment on the Westside. I have permission to hang shelves, and I was hoping to hang them up high (as shown in the photo). However, this doesn't seem safe. How do other Angelenos solve this problem? Should I give up on the idea of using vertical surfaces? Thanks! Meg
