That list of phonetic names looks a little like VOA phonetics, which, since the VOA is an official dept of the gov, is the official phonetics of USA , I suppose.  I call it cap-dash notation.   VOAspel is a little different   https://justpaste.it/voaspel   I wonder why they don't use it.

According to the National Hurricane Center, the correct pronunciation of "Isaias," as applied to the hurricane, is "ees-ah-EE-ahs," see https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/pdf/aboutnames_pronounce_atlc.pdf.
