- Hundreds of volunteers at an Air Force base in Colorado were answering questions on Sunday from eager children who wanted to know where Santa was on his Christmas Eve travels.

Tracks Santa got underway at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

This is a decades-old tradition by the USA military, and WDBJ7's Caitlin Francis spoke live on Sunday morning with a Santa Tracker, General Lori Robinson. The Sears ad misprinted the telephone number for children to call Santa.

NORAD paired up with Alexa to track Santa's whereabouts, this year.

"It's a unique capability that NORAD has", said Canadian Army Maj.

Thanks to the North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD) you can join Rudolph, Dancer, Prancer and the whole gang as they make the epic journey across the world.

Children around the world can call the Avaya-powered Santa tracking hotline at 1-877-HI-NORAD, to speak with NORAD Santa tracking experts. It's the 62nd year for the wildly popular program run by the USA and Canadian militaries.

The tracker now also has smartphone apps for iPhone and Android devices, while Amazon Alexa users can ask for Santa's location through the NORAD Tracks Santa skill.

Cold Christmas Eve Start
It was not produced by a computer like many forecasts you find on the web, social media and smart phone apps. You couldn't ask Santa for a better Christmas Day! Those winds will ease up to around 10 miles per hour.
