This could definitely cause the issue. If the belt is shredded then the water pump is probably not turning very well, if at all, and the same thing with the alternator. The check gauges light does not mean there is an issue or failure with the gauge. It is a way for the system to alert you to check them to see which is causing an issue.
Also, the water reservoir being empty did not help. I would fill this and replace the belt and then retest the vehicle after the vehicle cools down overnight.
Let me know what you find and we can go from there. Thanks
