Alternator Belt and power steering

today i had a loud streaking noise coming from a belt of some kind in front, then when i got home the steering went very hard and it seemed like i did not have power steering anymore, so i popped the hood to realize that the first belt on the left hand side (about 3/4 inch in width) was very loose...can anyone tell me what would that be, the power steering belt, the alternator belt, or some general belt

i have a ford focus zx3 2000

please help

Most likely a bad belt tensioner.
