Sounds like either the tension on the belt is off or it's become glazed. Would check p/s level in your reservoir too. Hopefully it's not an issue with the power steering pulley itself but you won't know till you have a look. Good Luck!

Possibly a bad power steering pump but check the fluid level before replacing it.
