2005 Volvo XC70 Question: Timing belt jumped- damage?

I just replaced my timing belt last week at the dealership's recommendation. This weekend, on our way from Va to FL, the timing belt "jumped". I am wondering if anyone has a guess about damage to the car. Car wouldn't start, and had to be towed to the nearest dealership.

    There could be some bent valves, if the belt jumped too far. This will mean removal of the cylinder head. It could get very expensive, like $2500+.
