belts dont just "slip off", unless you have the wrong size belt.

there is an underlying cause. check all pullies and the tensioner.

I have also seen belts come off after going through a large deep puddle of water too, but that is uncommon.

Don't drive it with out the belt on. With no water circulating will cause hot spots you can cause real damage such as a warped head or blow the head gasket. Spin the pulleys by hand do any feel hard to turn? You can put the belt back on your self. Here is a link to every How To: on the forum

The issue is now fixed. The tension was completely missing and all I had to do was replace it and get a new belt
