can I drive with just one alternator belt?

Does your Mitsubishi L300 make a strange noise? Need wheel alignment specs?

Hi guys

both my alternator belts blew. I thought I had 2 new ones in the wings but actually I just had 1 alternator and one A/C belt. Is it possible to drive on just one belt t get it back to my place while I wait for 2 new ones????

It shouldn't cause any harm, but it'll wear the belt out quicker, and failure of the belt means loss of brake booster and power steering. Is there no local parts store that can sell you a single belt?
