Power steering and AC suddenly went out while driving as well as battery light came on. Could this just be belt issue?

Bingo great guess.. Check the serpentine belt and all idler pulleys and tensioner too.

The belt either came off or broke. Many times this is caused by a bad bearing in one of the idlers or accessories or a bad belt tensioner.
