Powershell Cmdlets to Write to the Event Log

I'm modifying a Powershell script to write the Application Event Log in order to log errors.  I using the code attached.  What is the code to specify that the event is a warning or an error?
$EventLog = new-object System.Diagnostics.EventLog('Application')
$EventLog.MachineName = "."
$EventLog.Source = "Script"
$EventLog.WriteEntry("Error in processing")

Still in Error guys:

Exception calling "WriteEntry" with "2" argument(s): "The source was not found, but some or all event logs could not be searched.  Inaccessible logs: Security."
At :line:4 char:20
+ $EventLog.WriteEntry <<<< ("Testing Error in processing","ERROR")

$EventLog = new-object System.Diagnostics.EventLog("System")
$EventLog.MachineName = "."
$EventLog.Source = "Script"
$EventLog.WriteEntry("Testing Error in processing","ERROR")
