[200q20v] Dead alternator (?)

I got in my car last night to leave work, it starts up
fine and off I go. It was raining pretty hard, with
lots of water/puddles on the ground.

About a mile down the road, I get a BEEP and I look at
the voltmeter and it says about 10v. Yikes. I keep
driving, and it's staying on 10v for the most part.
After about 10 miles, it starts going down. And down,
and down and down, until finally it bottoms out and
the car dies (about 2 miles from my house of course).

So, did the alternator just eat it? Perhaps I drowned
it in a puddle?

Supposing I need to replace it, what is the way to go?
Get a new one? Rebuilt from someplace? If anyone has
done this recently and has prices, etc, please let me
