Mild, probably strombolian activity seems to be in progress at the volcano. Since mid November, local observers reported steam plumes and the volcano observatory reported increased seismic activity, typical of mild strombolian activity in the crater.
A hot spot visible on MODIS satellite data fits well into this picture.

According to a press article, the Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (PVMBG) reported that Raung volcano was seen emitting gray ash clouds on Sunday (6 Jan) morning. The plumes rose about 300 m above the crater. At night, "fire" could be seen around the crater and there were occasional thundering explosion sounds. ... [meer...]
