I think you lost your belt. Check under the hood and you should see a long rubber belt looping around the front of your engine. If it's not there or is there in pieces, replace it immediately as your water pump requires the belt to circulate water.
The no steering sounds like something to do with your power steering. Maybe you lpst your power steering belt
