Exclamation Serpentine Belt Came Off

My belt was making an funny noise today; decided to do a couple laps around my neighborhood's loop to see if it continued, and then it started making this awful noise, so I pulled over and popped the hood; I find my serpentine belt had just come off. Got it towed to my mechanic but won't hear from him until Monday. What's the prognosis, and how much money can I be expecting to pay?

I would place my bet that the belt tensioner failed. Whats the mileage on the car?

Turns out the air conditioner compressor failed and that's what caused the belt to fall off. So I'm getting a new air conditioner compressor, $1600 for all the parts
