Worsening sea ice has completely isolated a populated island on Bohai Bay off northeast China's Liaoning Province, stranding more than 3,200 people.

Bohai Bay is presently suffering from the worst sea ice in four decades. Almost 30,000 square km of ice now covers up to 40 percent of the bay.

The island of 13.5 square km is the largest in Liaodong Bay. It is only separated by 7.5 km gulf from Xingcheng City, Liaoning Province.

Meanwhile Marine Weather Forecast Official with the State Oceanic Administration Wang Hua said on Tuesday that the sea ice would continue to expand this week, as another cold front would arrive in the area today.

The ice has affected marine transport, fishing, aquatic breeding and offshore mining in Liaoning, Hebei, Shandong provinces and Tianjin Municipality.

Wang Weiliang, head of the Marine Fishing Bureau in Yingkou City, Liaoning, said the port in Yingkou, dubbed as China's northern most ice-free port, was currently covered by ice up to one meter thick.
