Sounds like the belt that drives the steering pump and alternator needs replacement.

It may also be a bad pulley somewhere causing the belt to slip worse. When you replace the belt make sure every pulley spins freely and fairly noise free. The big pulley shouldn't move without excessive force.

probably blew the serpentine belt

did you find out what happened my car just did this exact thing.
