There is a flood of mutually conflicting stories on the near past/future DST
changes in Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua. Here is a small
bouquet of articles to consider, not that I will pretend to judge which are
true or false:

Change of DST in Honduras:
expected for this Sunday 7 at 0:00

Change of DST perhaps postponed in El Salvador:
... it has the interesting claim that Honduras changed the same time as
Guatemala and Nicaragua.

Change of DST in Guatemala:
claims that the return of DST will happen the 30.th. of September at 24
hours, or really 1.st. of October at 0:00.

Another confirmation that Nicaragua change was at 2:00 in the morning:


Por orden del presidente de la República, Enrique Bolaños, Nicaragua
adelantó en sesenta minutos su hora oficial, ayer a las dos de la mañana, y
así permanecerá hasta el 30 de septiembre.

This means the following (my informal translation)
By order of the president of the republic, Enrique Bolaños, Nicaragua
advanced by sixty minutes their official time, yesterday at 2 in the
morning, and will stay that way until 30.th. of september.
