Central Standard Time Zone

From Sajun.org

The Central Standard Time Zone (CST) is a geographic region that keeps time by subtracting six hours from Coordinated Universal Time UTC.

In the United States, the time zone includes the entire area of the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Texas except for El Paso County, and Wisconsin, western portions of Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee, and eastern portions of Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota.

In Canada, the time zone includes all of Manitoba, nearly all of Saskatchewan, and a slice of western Ontario, and central Nunavut.

The time zone also covers most of Latin America.

When Daylight Saving Time is in effect in the United States and Canada, many regions switch to Central Daylight Time (CDT), UTC-5.
